An exhibition of works by Fredrik Åkum.

Fredrik Åkum is an artist born and raised in Kristinehamn, Sweden. Currently studying his MFA at the Valand Academy in Gothenburg, his work was first alerted to us through his vast back catalogue of self published zines. Working mainly within the field of painting and printmaking, Fredrik's strengths lay in composition and a fine eye for colour, mixing pastels and vibrants in the most unique of ways. His work is abstract at first glance but you are soon drawn to the figures within; climbing teens, the back of a head. What seemingly appears like a classic image is brought very much to contemporary by his touch.

Fredrik Åkum also co-founded Jarko - and independent publishing house, and Orosberg - a graphic design agency. We're extremely proud to have Fredrik as the first exhibitor here at Good Press in 2013.
